Ellerman Selection

There is a photo in the gallery titles 'Ellerman Selection'. It was taken sometime around 1960 in Liverpool. Can anyone fit names to faces please ?



I've added a link to your photograph to make reference easier.

Hall Line

During the depressionof the 1930's I remember being aboard various Hall Line vessels with my Father. For economy and to save coal, dynamos were shut down at midnight & the ship left in complete darkness apart from oil lights in the cabins.I understand Sir John Ellerman was very fair and generous to his senior officers during these dark days of depression. With almost 75% of the fleet laid up , he kept them employed on a rota system.
